Last fall, the commission on Law Enforcement Accountability, Community, and Transparency (LEACT), appointed by Governor Sununu and made up of law enforcement and community leaders from across the state, released a number of recommendations for police reform in New Hampshire. We check in with four members of that commission on which recommendations have been put into action, which haven't, and what's next. Listen to our show with commission members in September 2020, shortly after the recommendations were released.

Air date: Wednesday, May 26, 2021.
